According to a resident, Malam Bukar whose house was hit by the rockets, “I just returned from the mosque, suddenly I heard a very heavy explosion sound.”

“I was terrified, then my wife was screaming for help but thank God nothing bad happened to her.”

Another resident, Ali Ibrahim said, “When I heard the sound of the first explosion, I rushed out of my house to know what is happening, then the second one exploded close to my compound, on my way rushing inside, I saw the third rocket with my eyes, I had to lay down, it is from there I concluded that it was an attack.”
